This yatra, which aims to unite India, is on its 83rd day through Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh on Thursday.

This padayatra, which started on September 7, has so far covered 36 districts in 7 states. Another 1209 kms to travel.

Bharat Jodo Yatra is an ongoing mass movement started by the Indian National Congress. Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress, is orchestrating the movement by mobilizing the party cadre and general public into walking by foot from Kanyakumari, the southern tip of the peninsula, to the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir, spanning 3,570 kilometers over 150 days.

Launched by Gandhi and Tamil Nadu chief minister M. K. Stalin on September 7, 2022, its main objective is to fight against the politics of “fear, bigotry and prejudice” and the economics of livelihood destruction, increasing unemployment, and growing inequalities.
